What’s the bottom line?The bottom line is the minimum standard of behavior that a person sets for himself.
Dependent people have such a red line in their hearts, so that their hearts are clearly divided.
Know what to say and what not to say;What can be done and what can not be done.
This line, though invisible, is reflected in everyone’s words and actions.
The bottom line of the people, wealth can not bend, poverty can not be moved;
Wise but not calculating, rich but not poor;
Even if you can’t succeed others, you should never benefit yourself at the expense of others…
They are indifferent to fame and wealth, treat people sincerely, not cynical, extravagant wealth, but for a clear conscience.
A person with a bottom line will never lose his principles no matter what age he is or what experience he has. He will make people around him feel at ease.
Mencius said, ‘When a man does not do something, then he can do something.’
That is to say, in order to make a difference, one must know what not to do.
That is, we must hold the bottom line of life.
Most of us will not achieve great achievements in our lives, but will be anonymous and ordinary.
But as long as you hold the bottom line, you will retain your dignity, get respect, and in front of anyone, you can hold your head high and stand tall.
To be punctual
In our lives, we often meet people like this:
Always arrive a few minutes late for work, a little late for appointments, and a few extra points for meetings.
As long as you are in a good mood, it doesn’t matter if it’s sooner or later.
Being punctual seems like a small thing.
Because, after all, we are all ordinary people, and we don’t have to deal with a lot of responsibilities. We don’t need to fight against time.
However, punctuality is by no means a trivial matter.
It can see the principle of a person to do things, but also can affect a person’s life direction.
When Li Shutong studied in Japan in his early years, he and Ouyang Yuqian formed a deep friendship by co-founding “Spring Willow Society”.
Once, Li Shutong made an appointment to meet Ouyang Yuqian at 8 o ‘clock in the morning.
Because two people are far away from each other, when Ouyang Yuqian arrived, it was already more than 8 o ‘clock.
After Ouyang Yuqian handed in the card, Li Shutong opened the window and said, “You are five minutes late. I don’t have time now. Let’s make an appointment another day.”With a nod he closed the window.
